Every cycle I will give my feedback on the RPs that were posted. These will usually be 1-2 sentences on anything that particularly struck me .. whether it was something I liked, something that I felt just didn't click. It is meant to give you a little insight into my judging.

You can feel free to post your own feedback in this thread as well, but please be constructive.

Please note that I do not read any RPs until after the deadline is over and I read them all at the same time so I have a general idea of what might be given a 70, or a 65, or a 62 .. so on and so forth. I will not post the scores themselves, but each week I will announce what was the Roleplay of the Week.

CYBERSTRIKE 04

1. Cameron Cruise: I liked how you worked on the "if" motif. The one thing I didn't like, and I never find works that well, is the whole "I might not be training right now .. but I'll do it and I'll be ready!" Of course you're not training right now! Otherwise you wouldn't be doing the promo. But a strong effort.

2. Mr. Entertainment: You guys rock my world. Seriously. It's a shame that Strawsma is taking a break .. because you two really bring out the best in one another. Your consistency is the best amongst everyone, both in quality and content.

3. Michael Montgomery: You worked in your opponent's lack of participation in a way that suit your character. You also put effort into your RP when you probably had an inkling of knowledge that it was going to be a win for you no matter what. I appreciate it.

4. The Druid: Druid "out of his element" was different, but great. Like I said w/ Karl, you two really push each other, whether you realize it or not. My favorite line of the promo? "This federation doesn't need a Champion. It needs a mental revolution."

5. Fanatic: LOVED seeing the consequences of Fanatic's loss to Mr. Entertainment. It worked with the storyline and with the future of the TACT LEGACY.

6. Jonathan Marx: The wanting to reach through the TV to give Cruise a hug line made me literally LOL. My only criticism of the RP was that there was focus on Hart and on First .. focus that could have been put to better use on Cruise himself.

RP of the Week: "Actions and Consequences" by Fanatic


CYBERSTRIKE 05

1. Chaos: I liked it. It was referential to events happening and showed a lighter side to Chaos. You can sense Chaos is starting to change .. and the sit down interview worked really well.

2. Fanatic: Another strong effort. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I like the fact that Tact is doing all the yapping and Fanatic is doing all the backbreaking. It's old school managing at its best. It's a good thing that there are so many bazillionaires in New ERA since you guys are getting paid jackshit from us. ;)

3. Cameron Cruise: I liked how Cruise talked about the need for selfishness. The RP itself was a little lighter on content than I hoped for, however.

4. Michael Montgomery: This RP just seemed ... off. I don't know. It lost me almost immediately and I just couldn't recover. There were glimpses of the Montgomery that's been steadily improving over the season .. but overall, eh.

5. Chaos: You swung from the WINNING of your first RP back to the more conventional Chaos. I have to say, this RP actually scored higher. I think it was just more fitting of the character .. while still pushing forward with where you're heading to.

6. Pro Wrestling's SJH: Perfect Hart RP. You really turned it on. I was afraid you had been coasting the first few weeks, but when it came right down to it, you showed up and showed up good!

7. The First: Hampered by the tag team match, that's for sure. Great RP. High quality stuff. I liked the line where First shot down Druid by comparing his stuff to all the other lines used by others when talking about Armageddon, etc. Furthered the impending match w/ Hart, both at C05 and BB3. Great stuff.

8. The Druid: Maybe I'm just in love w/ sitdown interviews (now I watch as S02 is filled with them), but this was great. I loved that the Druid went off on how New ERA should have stayed dead .. how Mr. E vs Black at the end of RAUCOUS 37 was its defining moment.

9. Jonathan Marx: I enjoyed the fact that you helped build up your opponent by referencing his ever-growing bodycount and that he may or may not be used to the rules of non-PCX matches. You understand the intricacies that go into making a character real.. the only downside is that the RP itself seemed too short. I was just left with a "wanting" feeling - wanting more Marx - I guess it just felt like the RP was incomplete.

RP of the Week: "Dear Diary..." by Pro Wrestling's SJH

(Sorry for just getting these up now! But I wanted to make sure that I finished them before Season 2 started. BattleBRAWL 3 RP Feedback will be posted before the start of Season 2.)
